into the football season. but football wins. >> oh, right. >> bill: so cbs from your lofty perch, how do you see the race today particularly in light of the latest polls out from cbs "new york times" just released this morning. >> it's a fascinating debate going on at the moment with the republicans as these polls continue to roll out, and they continue to question, are they right? if they are right, romney in is trouble. ohio, pennsylvania florida, basically a margin of around 10 in all three states and much more importantly than just the spread itself is obama is well over 50% -- 53% in each of those states. >> you mean in terms of popularity. >> no, of support. and once you get a five there of course, that means you have to take away people who have committed to that person to your side. if you talk to the romney camp two or three months ago, they would say in each of these states look at the number on the obama side if it's 46, 45 47 we're in great shape. but when you start seeing numbers that are 49 or over 50 it's an entirely different battle. these polls reflect
to karl rove and then we'll talk. >> when news agencies like the cbs news report the polling and it shows that barak obama leaped out to a big lead in florida and ohio. that gets inside of people's minds and they remember that and that only helps the president. >> steve: sure. >> the perceptiona this he's going to be the winner. >> steve: right. >> it was not easy to dig thel out. you have to go to the website and instrument that they fielded and big the data out of there. >> brian: even if they are weighted or using the wrong moto. president obama targeted like a lazer. he's been to ohio 29 times and multipill appearances and he hasn't tried be president for two years and mitt romney is having multiple appearances and blitwhereand get his story out. he allowed president to save i saved the autoindustry. no one talks about the dealership or jobs lost and no one talks about how the unions got more control. if mitt romney is not going to get the word out. i don't care who will do the polling. >> gretchen: that is true. we talk about messaging and who is win thag battlement he need toz get t
's check the hardball scoreboard. according to a "new york times"/cbs/quinnipiac poll, obama leads romney by ten points. down in florida, the president's lead in the poll is nine, 53-44. the president looks to be opening up a big lead now, even in the face of this coordinated attack from the right. with me now are mother jones bureau chief and msnbc political contributor david corn and cynthia tucker. i want to talk about the good news for the obama team right now. cynthia, why do you think -- take a minute here -- despite this ugly campaign i've just pointed out in its pattern, its thread, what they are doing to try to delegitimize this president, why is he doing well in the toughest states? >> we've talked about what campaign has done wrong. we haven't spent as much time talking about the things obama has done right. obama has done a lot of things right. for one thing, he's just a stronger candidate. he relates to people better. he's more approachable. his favorability rates are higher, while romney has high unfavorability ratings. but obama actually has a set of principles he believes
left, they did in 2008 and they're doing it again. >> dana: reuters and cb s news have followed up on the story. if you look at the editorial pages today. >> greg: "usa today." when "usa today" calls you out on a story is a protester calling you out on hygiene. >> eric: they're 20 days late, though. my biggest problem is within a couple of days the guy from the national counterterror said, i think he said look, it looks like terrorism. a couple of days, ambassador rice talking to david gregory and candy crowley and bob schieffer and george stephanopoulos and not one of them pushed back and said what about it? what about the other people saying terrorism? where are you? how can you blame the movie? main stream media is complicit in this tragedy. can i say one point. jon stewart last night jumped on board and is calling the main stream media out. about time you get on board, too. >> greg: bob? you can talk as long as you want. >> bob: i don't want to talk. in your monologue you said they are out to get the american people and to protect america's enemies. strong statement. even comin
party and richard nixon. and though my colleague from cbs and is referred to there has asked, i did not feel richard nixon did a complete answer. he referred to me as a non- essential question or some words of that effect. he did not answer it well. it stuck with him. it was the party he was confused of not having the confidence of president -- of president eisenhower, because of a great way that is what the republican line was, experience that counts. >> you were free to pursue that question, right? >> no vetting of questions. i heard about the debate the day before when i was covering nixon and the south. i got on the train that went to chicago, and went in on the following monday to go wbbm cbs affiliate in chicago. we sat in a row, and all we did was introduce ourselves to the camera. our producer went on to produce "60 minutes." that was it. >> in that clip richard nixon looks very confident and gave you a long answer. clearly anticipated some part of this. what we remember was the recollection that he was sweating heavily, nervous and prepare. you were in the room in that part
can keep trying. anyway, on cbs "face the nation" this sunday bill clinton was noncommittal in his way if hillary clinton will run in 2016. we can always read this guy. he left no doubt that he thinks she's in the right job now and, of course, we know what he's thinking about the future. let's watch him in action. >> i just don't know. she's an extraordinarily able person. i never met anybody i thought was a better public servant, but i have no earthly idea what she'll decide to do. >> you know he's really good at that. john, i just -- i find him so fascinating to watch. just to listen to him and his iq must be in the 200 range and he's there saying what he knows he has to say, don't speak for her, she's an autonomous figure, happened to be married to him, but she's a politician in her own right. don't preclude anything she does but i thought it was very much a cheerful message about her. >> well, look, president clinton clearly wants his wife to run in 2016. i don't think there's any doubt about that. i spent the day at cgi and there's a lot of the old clinton network around that oper
to bring you in on this, kevin madison with the romney campaign, he was on cbs, he was asked about this tape. let me play it. >> we believe, as a campaign, i think governor romney believes what is most relevant is the president's policies and how they are affecting the economy today, how they are affecting people's bottom line, how they are affecting household incomes. >> does this show a priority list difference, perhaps some of the conservative commentators, chip, wanting to find their a ha moment to get back, i guess, that the 47% video of romney as opposed to what kevin madden says answered the campaign would like to talking about, the priorities getting this economy turned around? is there a divide within conservatives in the party on how to fight back? >> when you are running a campaign and there's other groups doing everything, always doing something else. kevson very smart, keeping it focused on jobs and the economy and the romney campaign. and i think the only a ha is going to matter today about 9:01 when the debate starts and these two guys are on the same stage together.
university "new york times" cbs news poll shows obama leading in ohio, florida and pennsylvania. it matches our own marist polling which shows the president leading in all nine swing states. joining me now, peter brown, the assistant director of the quinnipiac university polling institute. peter, i want to ask you about historically speaking have the polls been largely accurate? >> yes. the polls have been quite accurate over time. now, everybody likes to point to the 1948 election when the polls said that thomas dewey would win the election and he didn't. harry truman did. that was 40 years ago when polling was in its infancy. polls are very good at telling you what the situation is at the time they're taken, not a week from thursday, not two months from tomorrow. they're good for then. >> that snapshot, right. some of the gop complain the pollsters are oversampling democrats in the swing states. are they overestimating democratic turnout for november? can you explain how this works? >> sure. the key is that we and most of the other major polls do not weight by party. that is, there is no
